Erwin Orcahrds Inc. began when James Erwin planted his first tree in 1920. A third generation family run farm for over 95 years, Erwin Orchards manages 200 acres of farmland with some of the newest and best technology. The orchard is located in South Lyon, Michigan just outside of Detroit.
Visitors to the Orchard can enjoy a variety of family friendly activities. Popular among visitors, apples, raspberries and pumpkins are available for picking.
